Justin Baeder is Director of The Principal Center, where he helps school leaders build capacity for instructional leadership in their organizations. His online program ͞The Instructional Leadership Challenge͟ has helped more than 10,000 school leaders in more than 50 countries make a habit of getting into classrooms and providing evidence-rich
feedback for professional learning. Mr. Baeder is a PhD candidate at the University of Washington, where he studies principal productivity and organizational decision-making. His online courses focus on productivity, technology, and
instructional leadership.

One of the biggest barriers to more consistently spending time in classrooms is time pressure—overwhelming workloads and frequent interruptions make it difficult for school leaders to develop a consistent habit of visiting classrooms and talking with teachers. But an equally pressing issue is what to do during and after classroom visits to have a positive impact on student learning.  The High-Performance Instructional Leadership Institute is based on a two-pronged theory of action:
• Instructional leaders are most effective at leading improvements in student learning when they make decisions based on firsthand knowledge of what is happening in classrooms; and • The best way to improve teaching is through
evidence-rich conversations linked to a shared instructional framework.

The Institute is a professional learning experience designed to help school administrators put this theory into practice.. If administrators are to spend substantially more time in classrooms, simply trying harder or setting a
goal won’t be enough. To devote dramatically more time to instructional leadership, we need systems.

Such systems need three components:
• Sound strategy, to ensure that leaders’ efforts are achieving their intended results
• Powerful tools to increase efficiency, and
• Disciplined habits to create consistency over time.

In the High-Performance Instructional Leadership Institute 2-Day Intensive, participants learn how to develop the systems they need to carve out time for classroom visits and powerful conversations with teachers.

Registration includes two days of Administrator training and one day of co-training with your Administrative Assistant on Day 1.
